David O. McKay Library Remodel Project

The Board of Directors recently approved a project for a major remodel of the David O. McKay Library. We express our appreciation to the Board for their approval and support of the project, which will be a blessing to our students and faculty. The remodel will be a multi-year project that will be divided into two phases.

Phase One
August 2024 – January of 2026
West wing, basement, and new east wing south entrance
Phase Two
January 2026 – January 2027
East wing of the building

Phase One Details

  • Preparations for phase one will begin immediately with the moving of offices and books from the west to the east wing.
  • Construction on phase one will begin August 1st.
  • Once construction begins, the only access to the library will be the north entrance facing the Spori Quad.
  • The walkway beneath the library will be closed throughout the remodel.

Library Resource, Locations, and Availability

Although there will be limited access to computers, books, and study space, all library services will be available throughout the remodel.

  • Tutoring and other learning centers will remain on the second floor of the east wing.
  • Librarian offices will be temporarily moved to the study rooms on the second floor of the east wing.
  • The east-wing computer stations and study areas will be removed to make room for bookshelves.
  • Some physical copies of books will be accessible in the east wing, but due to space limitations, a portion of the book collection will be kept in storage. Interlibrary loans will be available to borrow inaccessible materials from other libraries until phase one is complete.
